• Improving Pain Management after Orthopedic Surgery

    image_08Pain management is greatly improved by a multiple modality approach used by Dr. Tauro and his anesthesia/pain management team.

    Spinal, rather than general, anesthesia is administered as its pain numbing effect lasts longer. Next, a tiny catheter, which continuously delivers pain medication, is inserted next to the sensory nerve by an anesthesiologist using ultrasound guidance. Finally, a mixture of pain-relieving medications is injected around the surgical site.

    Patients report pain levels of a 1 or 2 out of 10 post-op, as opposed to the previous 7 to 9. Patients are usually able to go home the next day. A visiting home nurse and home physical therapy is provided to make recovery easier.

    To schedule an appointment or consultation with Dr. Tauro and his team, please call 732.341.6226.
